Taylor Momsen has balls. Well, had balls. The Gossip Girl star and wannabe rocker displays some odd pyrotechnic proclivities, according to her fellow Pretty Reckless band members. Guitarist Ben Phillips says, "Taylor loves setting things on fire, so this is great. Taylor thinks we're some rock 'n' roll bada*ses. In the studio, there was this pit where the owner would burn stuff. We'd burn old keyboards, computers, stuff them full of TNT and set them on fire. Taylor loves fire." Her best Beavis impression came in a horrifying fashion to the studio one morning. Phillips continued, "I shouldn't say this. One morning, Taylor got into the studio really early -- she'd just had her dog neutered and brought in the bits. Which she then burned. We were grossed out." Momsen is perceived as being difficult to work with, displaying divalike behavior, but the 17-year-old says nuts to that: "I do smile when things are funny. I'm quite moody, I'm a teenager and I'm PMS-ing all the f***ing time, what do you expect? I am quite moody and I have an interesting life and I get my picture taken 24/7, and it's not always pleasurable. I am really moody, but I'm not a mean person. I'm actually nice." We think it would be a good idea to watch your Bass around this firecracker.
